After daydreaming for years about how our life would look like if me and my husband buy a motorhome and spend our summer holidays travelling the country, today, with great joy and pride I can say that we’ve made it! It was high time for that dream to become a reality and luckily, it didn’t take us long before it did. The funniest thing though, is that it wasn’t even as expensive as we thought it would be.
We decided to purchase an old motorhome, the one that my husband’s good friend decided he no longer needed as he was moving to Europe. We’re sad he and his wife are leaving, but boy we’re so lucky we finally have our getaway ticket. And since buying a motorhome means a new beginning and marks a whole new era filled with spontaneous adventures for us, I decided to mark the fresh start with brand new furnishings and complete renovation of the caravan. Excitement mode on!
Since motorhomes are not very spacious (ours is just the size we need it to be), they require some very good planning of the available space and a creative design that will tie everything together. I went with dark wood floors and and wallpaper in neutral colours which gave the space a cozy and homey touch.
As a housewife who cares a lot about how the home looks like, whether everything is neat and clean as well as whether there’s food on the table, I paid special attention to the kitchen. To make use of the limited space, I placed a long skinny table which can be tucked away when not in use and folding chairs which I can also put away when I need the space. I placed a convection oven/microwave combination to save as much space as I could, leaving me the option to cook and bake my favourite recipes open.
When I was looking for motorhome kitchen sinks I made sure to narrow down my choices and go straight with the most durable option – a stainless steel drop sink. This is one of the most stylish and smartest looking motorhome kitchen sinks as it comes with a fold down glass lid which is very useful in providing extra bench space when it is not used. Furthermore, I painted the cupboards white in order to make the space look as big as possible. The whole interior is designed in a rather modern way with the help of mirrors to visually increase the space and subtle wallpaper designs to add interest.
I have to admit, I came up with some clever and practical solutions that saved me a lot of space and added much appeal to my second home. I love how everything turned out at the end – the place gives off a certain vibe that makes you want to keep on driving and exploring the unseen without even thinking about the real world. And why would you when you have all you need in the comfort of your motorhome? Time for our dreams to come true, au revoir.
